East Fife 2-2 Arbroath- Match Report

Arbroath bounce back

Arbroath twice came from behind to battle to a 2-2 draw at East Fife.

The Fifers, who had lost their last three, flew out of the blocks and Andrew Cook fired in at the near post to give his side the lead after six minutes.

Arbroath, on a winless streak of five themselves, responded on the half-hour mark when Stuart Malcolm lost his marker at the near post to nod a Josh Falkingham cross into the bottom corner.

The hosts started the second half with purpose, Craig Johnstone finding Steven Hislop at the far post, who restored his side's lead with a cool finish.

But they had to settle for a draw when substitute Gavin Swankie's inch-perfect free-kick found the bottom corner to grab Arbroath a point.
